Wild Women, Wild Land

Daughters, Sisters, Mothers & Grandmothers
Restoring the Wild Woman Archetype
ReForesting the Soul ~ Becoming Authentic

Women ages 18 and older

September 6th - 11th, 2017 

Five nights/ six days/ three teachers
New Mexico Gila Wilderness and National Forest

Gathering in the heart of one of the last wild lands in North America, join other women as we empower ourselves to write new chapters for new lives. Sooner or later something calls to us, pulls us out of our personal enclaves, demands we look into the depths of who we are and asks: have you become who you were born to be? 

Marvelous and uniquely crafted the body of woman is a
sacred vessel, home to the divine spirit in creation.

 

 

When inward tenderness
Finds the secret hurt
Pain itself will crack the rock And ah! Let the soul emerge.

~Rumi

The Wild Woman archetype lives inside each of us. Enrolling in this program, you are honoring the call that she has sent up from deep inside. You give her permission to be alive and out loud in the world.

This work is deeply intimate and necessitates a willingness to look deep inside, to ask questions, to examine belief about what it means personally to be a woman, a human being in these chaotic and changing times.

Well behaved women seldom make history.

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Do you follow the roaring of the river or run from it? Do you lean into strong transformative winds or turn your back on them? Does your life have meaning? Are you willing to be astonished by yourself?  Can you spend the rest of your life living with you? Is your personal myth wild or domesticated?  Is archaic shame still influencing your decisions, actions and behaviors? Are you in love with being a woman? Do you ache for yet fear intimacy? Do you deny intuition, shadows, passion, creativity, perceptions? 

Explore ancient ways of listening to nature and your own body through deep Earth Wisdom, ceremony, inner wisdom and outer guidance.

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?

~T.S. Eliot
